|hc Hütern ^hnmpion. Vita sine literis mors est. THE short session, or fragment of a ßeBsion, which terminated on Thurs day last, has become celebrated in tho history of Queensland for having re versed within the space of thrco weeks a policy endorsed by the pre sent and previous parliament after years of discussion and hard fighting. Putting on one side the Supreme Court Bill and the Leprosy Bill, both of them measures urgently required, and meeting with opposition from no Eartice in the House, the session has een devoted to the passing of the Pacific Island Laborers' (Extension) Bill, which is now the law of the land.

TWILIGHT. TIB evening in the lonely bush, the long day'i work is o'er ; And now tile ruddy she-oak's glow, falls 01 rough roof and floor, And nus che bushman's old log hut wit! changeful fairy light, Till all tiie sombre shadows fly into the silent night. Upon the rough hewn wooden block, thc quiel bushman sits, His steadfast gaze rests on the flames, hit sunburnt brow he knits, Forgotten is his soothing pipe, his thought) have flown away, Prom but and Are and lonely bush, back to t bygone day. A rocky turf-bound coast he sees, in Scotland1! bonny isle, Again upon his boyish days, dear loving facet smile, The purple hills of Arran rise before his fancy bright, The dark sailed herring-boats float by, lit by the western light. The ashes fall, the picture fades, then like the Phoenix old, A new scene flushes into life, in outlines clear and bold, An ancient pile, with spacious halls, where dons and students meet, And cool grey courts, whose well-worn stones have ccbo'ed many feet.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. Village Settlement on the Thompson. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 19 April 1892

LETTER TO THE EDITOR, Village Settlement on the Thompson. is _ t> - HTJWDBEDB of bußhmen are wandering about the country looking for work and begging rations, despite the fact of ladies wearing pearl neck\ ces and individuals sitting donn to good dinners. The necklace was given as an illustration. Unfortunately, I touched on pearls. St. Paul warns UB in the Sacred volume against the careless disposal of those ' precious geom I disregarded his caution, and the inevitable result followed no doubt. Sir Edwin Arnold will feel nattered at the editor's remarks on that great masterpiece, "The Light of Asia." But I fear that the grand and lofty principles inculcated in that work will hardly be realised by the modern proBlmongers and corner-allotment men. But I am transgressing. The Alice River Settlement has demonstrated on a email scale what wonders can bo accomplished by co operation under the most adverse conditions. Here on the Thompson we hate some of the most magnificent land in th...

TWENTÏ-NINE acres of glase are to be used in the roofs of the Exhibition buildings at Chicago. The thickness of the glass is to be uniform-vi«., three-sixteenths of au inch.

FASTING MEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 19 April 1892

PASTING- MEUT. SiQNOE Suca, after fasting a few hours short of fourty-faur days, resolved to have something to eat. But-except to Sucei himself, who, since be has lost thirty-eight and a-half pounds, must have been poorly sustained by periodical doses of a mysterious elixir and the applause of an idle mob-the fact is of no immediate importance. Had he completed tbe fifty-two days daring which be undertook to abstain from solids, nothing would have been proved, except that the Italian had succeeded, ai others had done before, in accomplishing a very foolish ex periment. Mankind, until the ways of the Tace and the laws of Nature alter very considerably, will continue to take three meals a day. Some may do with less ; few require more ; but nobody in bis Benses, and having the wherewithal to stay his appetite, is at all likely, without the stimulus which impelled the latest of the food-abstainers, to try tbe virtues of permitting fifty-two, or the one twentieth part of fifty-two days t...

A Splendid Tale of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 19 April 1892

A. Splendid Tale of the Sea. LABT February the whaling ship Star of the Bast was in the vicinity of the Falkland Islands searching for whales, which were very scarce. One morning the look-out sighted a whale about three miles away on the starboard quarter. Two boats were manned. In a short time one of the boats was near enough to enable the harpooner to send a spear into the whale, which proved to be an exceedingly large one. With the shaft in its side the animal sped away, dragging the boat after bim with terrible speed. The second boat waited for him, and when but a short distance away from it he rose to the surface. As soon as his back showed above the surface of the water the harpooner in the second boat drove another spear into him. The pain apparently crazed the whale, for it thrashed about fearfully, and it was feared that the boats would be swamped and crews drowned. Finally the whale swam away, dragging the two boats after him. He went about three miles and sounded or sank,...

Country Loafers. (From Saturday's Charleville Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 19 April 1892

Country Loafers. (From Saturday's Charleville Times.) UHE unemployed question is again making itself felt in the metropolis and other towns, and, os usual, the first cry is to provide free passes upon the railways to enable the men to get out'into the back country and obtain work. Beading an article from the Courier the other day about the distress in Brisbane, anyone would be led to suppose that the dis- j treBB waB centred in and around the metro- j polis, and that once they passed Boma there j was nothing to do but ask for work anywhere and find it to hand. It does not appear to the metropolitan wisdom that the work to be found in the bush requires training and practice as well as any other. Most of our readers, especially tradesmen, have expe rienced the surprise expressed by men from the city at finding workmen as expert as themselves, or perhaps more so, out in the bock country ; the general idea in the metro polis is that anything will pass muster in the bush. As an instance,...

The Windsor Murder. NOTES AT THE INQUEST. (Australasian) TWENTY-FIVE minutos past IO by the court clock on Tuesday morning, when the word is given by Dr. Neild, the acting coroner, to "call Williams." Tlie spectators arc sitting in thc City Court, Latrobe-street, the dark, dingy, stone building, which for about 30 years was known as the Supreme Court, standing in close proximity to the Melbourne gaol. At once every tongue stops wagging, and every neck is craned towards thc red-curtained Gothic door at the side of the dock. A pause of a minute, during which you could hear the beat ing of your own heart, and then thc red cur tain is swept aside and two whito-hclmcted constables, each with thc ann of a man whom they urge along, come quickly through the opening. He frees himself from their grasp with an impatient movement as they enter the court, and then diving bis hands into his trousers pockets, back to the dock, faces thc spectators, and thc glorious sunshine pouring in through thc ...
